In an ideal world, all disputes would be settled amicably. This is where we always begin. With negotiations and alternative means to resolving
your issues, such as mediation or arbitration. However, when there is no alternative, you need experienced counsel to fight for and defend your rights.
Bergsteins handles every type of civil litigation through all courts in Ontario, as well as in the Federal Court of Canada. Cost-effective satisfaction is our primary goal and we provide this to you by offering clear advice and
intelligent strategies developed through decades of experience in and out
of the courtroom.
Bergsteins provides sound advice and peace of mind through personalized
wills and powers of attorneys for every situation.
We also assist in the administration of estates on behalf of executors. You are not alone in this responsibility. We handle the appointment of estate trustees and the collection of estate assets and payment of estate liabilities.
We also handle complex issues of disputed claims by beneficiaries and non-beneficiaries and litigation by or against the estate.
Labour / Employment
Whether it is your job or your business, the relationship between employer and employee is fundamental. We provide you with the proper foundation when beginning a relationship, as well as help you address your issues when a relationship breaks down.
We work closely with employers to create thorough employment and independent contractor agreements. This provides you with confidence in moving forward with your most important resources, your people. When relationships break down, we protect your rights and your obligations so you can efficiently transition your business.
For employees, we help review and negotiate agreements to protect you into the future. In the event of termination, we give you clear advice and help you enforce your rights and receive all of your entitlements.
